ERGO Buddy

Lea Rowing Club

A fantastic host for our community project. Captain Matt Pooley, embraced the project and accommodating our needs fully. We’re proud to have partnered with Lea Rowing Club, a landmark in the history of rowing in London.

Rowing Sessions with Clive Collier

These rowing sessions were delivered by Clive Collier of Inclusive Rowing. Clive specialised in servicing the Deaf and Disabled community with accessible rowing sessions every Wednesday at 12 o’clock.

What is ERGO?

ERGO referred to an indoor rowing machine. Under the guidance of Clive Collier, participants were taught the correct technique for a lifetime of rowing. With enough passion, practice, and endeavour, the goal was to get participants rowing on the water as soon as possible.

Made Possible by Ardonagh Community Trust

Thanks to the Ardonagh Community Trust, the ELREM Foundation CIC was able to deliver their latest project, ERGO Buddy. This initiative provided inclusive indoor rowing skills to Deaf and Disabled participants, exemplifying how small-scale social responsibility could deliver macro-sized benefits.
